Knoppix on my PC

Decided to try out Knoppix just to see if a "Live on CD" Linux would really work.

Well, it really does. 🙂

My only stumble initially was to get an LCD display to display properly. I found I could get the native resolution just by typing fb1280x1024 and the proper res showed up. Cool beans. No fuss, no muss.

Everything detected quite nicely and my USB devices showed up without a problem (however, you do have to remember to mount/unmount).

Nice to know I have an alternative OS I just boot from a CD-ROM!!! Neato mosquito.
